13460048, Looks like Riverdale with dragons.

13460054, I don't expect it to be as good as the OG but I will probably watch for...

nostalgia's sake and apparently one of the main characters is black and that will be interesting...https://gameofthrones.fandom.com/wiki/Corlys_Velaryon

13460186, Yeah, that's just hate. Lol

This looks like it has a huge budget and you can clearly see it on the screen. People forget how "cheap" GOT looked in its first couple seasons before it became a powerhouse.
13460062, You just made it. Congratulations.

Posted by Mynoriti, Mon May-09-22 08:10 PM
i'm in on Dragons and Tywin alone

hopefully they don't fuck it up
13460116, Isn't this like 200 years in the past?

I doubt any characters you know from the first show are even referenced in this let alone played by new actors.

Anyway - what do I look like, some kinda nerd? I'm gonna treat this same as I did the first show, let it play out and if the hype builds I'll binge it.

13460117, ahh shit. dude looked like Tywin lol
Posted by Mynoriti, Mon May-09-22 09:17 PM
hand of the king guy

but yeah you're right Tywin referenced never seeing a dragon.. just the tiny skulls of the last ones

i wonder if he's a lannister.

13460133, It doesnt involve Benioff & Weiss so im all the way in.

Also Miguel Sapochnik is the director/executive producer. I'm hyped.
13460150, It's amazing how fast GOT went from revered series...

...to not at ALL talked about or rewatched in the way The Wire, The Sopranos, etc were.

That last season really did a number on its legacy. I'm not all that interested in this spinoff, but I'll probably check it out.
13460170, Yeah it's kinda wild really

lately I've been hearing people say LOST was unfairly panned for its ending and i still don't agree because so much of the show rested so much on all this mystery, and the writers basically said, ehh who cares, fuck you.

GoT was more they took a group of novels and finished them with a Wiki summary.
It was jarring drop but for me it didn't ruin how great it was for 4-5 seasons, mainly because i didn't think it rested as much on the landing.
but it def feels like the show is seen as trash by many now
